My daughter had to leave her rented property under an

Customer Question

My daughter had to leave her rented property under an Environmental Prohibition order due to presence of asbestos following a water leak from the loft which brought down the bedroom ceiling. She was only allowed to take a few belongings with her and has been temporarily accommodated for the last few months. Various correspondence has gone back and forth between the local authority, the landlord and herself and the landlord was instructed to have the asbestos dealt with and my daughters property properly cleaned of the possible asbestos contamination. She has just heard that the landlord has instructed someone to fully dispose of all her property including her two children's toys, clothes, personal effects and presents they have been given. She has been told the items have been disposed of totally and cannot be recovered (whatever that means) and she is in a very distressed state. Is there any way she can have legal redress in this situation, but I have to add she is almost penniless and on very basic child benefit only so she needs to have legal aid if there is a case to answer. As her father I am acting as an intermediary but it would be far better if she could meet with someone and fully understand what her rights are (or are not). She has limited access to telephones but I believe she can access email. Thank you.
